So, does this dispel the belief that you have to go to university to bag a good job?
Hmm, sometimes. Because some jobs, like construction managers, don’t require a degree but earn double the national salary (£28,000) on average.

And considering that the Office for National Statistics show that nearly a third (29%) of graduates earn less than those who entered work via an apprenticeship rather than a degree, views on university education may be changing.
Government figures also show that one in five apprentices is 35 or older showing that many are upskilling without having to be a mature student.
So, what do you think? Do you think university education is still necessary?
